Transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg attacked former president Donald Trump for visiting the site of the toxic chemical spill in East Palestine, Ohio last month.
Buttigieg made the comments during an interview with CNN over the weekend.
“It’s really rich to see some of these folks – the former president, these Fox hosts,” Buttigieg seethed, “who are literally lifelong card-carrying members of the East Coast elite, whose top economic policy priority has always been tax cuts for the wealthy, and who wouldn’t know their way around a T.J. Maxx if their life depended on it, to be presenting themselves as if they genuinely care about the forgotten middle of the country?”
“You think Tucker Carlson knows the difference between a T.J. Maxx and a Kohl’s?” he continued.
Buttigieg denied that President Donald Trump’s visit to East Palestine pressured him to show up as well. “That’s bullshit, we were already going to go,” he insisted.
Trump taunted President Joe Biden over the latter’s avoidance of East Palestine, Ohio following the toxic chemical leak and train derailment that occurred in February.
As Trump was touring East Palestine last month, journalist Savanah Hernandez asked, “Mr. President, what is your message to Joe Biden before you leave?”
“Get over here,” Trump quipped.
During his Wednesday visit to East Palestine, Trump made the rounds in the rural community, handing out his trademark “Make America Great Again” hats as he ventured into a local McDonald’s.
“They’re systematically destroying our country and it’s a shame, ‘Boot-edge-edge’ should’ve been here,” the 45th President said.
Meanwhile, the current commander-in-chief had an embarrassing incident occur while Trump was back in the US touring East Palestine.
Biden’s “historic” trip to Ukraine and Eastern Europe culminated with him falling down on the Air Force One stairs, evoking comparisons to his infamous tumble on the same staircase in 2019.

To Buttigieg if you were doing your job instead of sitting around doing nothing to help maybe Trump wouldn’t have needed to come out. You couldn’t or wouldn’t even send then clean drinking water that we know for sure is safe. Bet you didn’t drink the water out of the tap because you know it isn’t safe. Your just as useless as all the other damn democrats and your BULLSHIT LIES.
EAT SHT MAGGOT !!

March 7, 2023 at 4:57 pm

March 7, 2023 at 2:22 pm
Envious, cause the Real Commander in chief Beat you? incompetent loser to something that should have been done immediately after the derailment!!! Get off your arse and do your job! lazy bunch of losers.

This little a$$wipe is just another loudmouth punk that thinks he’s above everybody else. The boychild/it finally shows up at East Palestine looking and acting like a spoiled little boy visiting daddy’s work all dressed up in a grown up’s safety vest and hard hat with NO CLUE about what he’s being told or shown. For the wimp to make a feeble attempt to insult Carlson by calling him a “East coast elite” is pathetic. All he does is pretend to be an “elite”.
March 7, 2023 at 3:00 pm
Right on, you give it to that butt igeg
March 7, 2023 at 4:54 pm
Absolutely correct and he isn’t only a disgrace to our Republic under God but he is a shameful poor excuse for a human being! These leftie Dems are over the top evil!
Let’s say it like it is folks we have demonic influenced lying despots running loose in our government!
March 6, 2023 at 3:37 pm
Hey ButtGeek, you are the bullshit part, and no one else. You could not walk in President Trump’s shoes. You have to grow up a lot first. You are so sickening incompetent and brainless, the whole world knows by now. Can’t wait for you to get thrown out on the street, to go back to your pothole emergencies.
March 7, 2023 at 4:59 pm
He deserves GITMO for Traitors!
March 6, 2023 at 4:08 pm
He just needs a good dry poking in his biden!
March 6, 2023 at 5:04 pm
Looks like this rumprider has gotten his panties in a wad.
March 6, 2023 at 5:12 pm
buttafreak is a little twott
March 6, 2023 at 5:21 pm
THis just goes to show how out of touch with reality, with the american people. They had no idea of going until Trump went which made them look
really bad & shallow.
March 7, 2023 at 5:10 pm
It’s come out in the wash as the saying goes and all these guys are, is sheeit on a stick; as useless as useless gets all of them!!!
People are suffering and dying because of these wicked human trash dumpsters and it started with FJB’s complete disaster withdrawal from Afghanistan which is the worst possible exit America could have done!
All that video of the devastating withdrawal after 20 years of hard fought battle against the Taliban; was the writing on the wall, and since then all they have done is destroy America!
“C’mon man” FJB we know you serve the CCP you commie Traitor!
March 6, 2023 at 5:38 pm
Pete “Boot-edge-edge” is a useless POS.
He is an arrogant punk. He doesn’t belong on the National stage. Senile Joe only pick Pete because he satisfied a”block” on the employment chart.
March 6, 2023 at 6:13 pm
It’s not hard to make someone that doesn’t work look bad. Booty judge only went because President Trump made him look bad.
March 6, 2023 at 6:32 pm
The whole Biden administration is corrupt and filled with incompetent twits like Butthead.
Thomas Jefferson said that a little revolution every now and then can be a good thing….when the government has left it’s constitutional base it is up to the citizens to tear it down and reform it back on a solid constitutional base again…………..
WE ARE THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BIDEN IS A TRAITOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BIDEN MUST BE REMOVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
March 7, 2023 at 2:07 pm
The 25th Amendment needs,to be invoked NOW.This senile POS needs,to be sent to an assisted living facility called Super Max. His treason has become so obvious. He has done more damage than the Japanese did at Pearl Harbor. Time to say adios clown!
March 6, 2023 at 6:45 pm
Wow! That little fagot got thin skin!!!
March 6, 2023 at 6:45 pm
Peter Puffer Pete isn’t worth a SHIT just like Brain Dead Biden POS
March 6, 2023 at 9:00 pm
Right…little Peter WAS ‘going to go’…right after his testers told him it was SAFE to go.
March 6, 2023 at 10:34 pm
Mayor Pete is really outraged because when he was Mayor of South Bend, no one stepped in to handle any of the disasters he created. Pete was good at “fixing” things in the city that were not broken. It was a key factor in doling out millions in “consulting fees” to his gay friends.
March 7, 2023 at 5:31 am
Sounds like buttplug really made friends there with that statement. and just WHAT does he know about cutting taxes Not dem knows anything about cutting taxes only raising them For sure dont cut spending right like i have to do

March 7, 2023 at 6:51 am
LOL, President Trump, watch out, this lil girly man will scratch your eyes out in his hissy fit. Buttlicker grow a set and act like a REAL man, not the cowardly wimp. Your swishy ass needs to be removed from office.
March 7, 2023 at 8:01 am
This is the only thing incompetent perverts can do, they have zero else to offer.
March 7, 2023 at 10:13 am
On an adult poltical level: President Biden gave this “Homo”…Buttiegieg, a job he was not QUALIFIDE FOR, & SIMPLY IS WAY OVER HIS HEAD!
*Biden, & HIS TRAINED *HYENA…[ HARRIS}…& THE ENTIRE BIDEN CABINET, SHOULD BE “IMPEACHED”, WITH “NO RETURN POSSIBLE”! :o}}}
America is hurting, & terminal? ?? ? ? Demoncrats should not be allowed to go “NEAR” a voting booth!
March 7, 2023 at 5:18 pm
This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that all this current administration is about is being the best Ass Kissing Squad in history and they only know how to Puck-Up anything they touch!
March 7, 2023 at 2:09 pm
PRESIDENT TRUMP gave you nearly 3 weeks to get your delicate little BUTTigieg over there first.
WHY is it his fault that you are COMPLETELY UNQUALIFIED and only appointed because of your INTELLECTUAL/EMOTIONAL DYSFUNCTION that make you think YOUR FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND the FACT that sex has two functions.
God made it feel good to ENSURE THE CONTINUATION OF THE SPECIES.
you took the easy way out and never bothered to DEVELOP A PERSONALITY that might attract a WOMAN!
Lazy to the core and INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST WITH YOURSELF!
March 7, 2023 at 2:35 pm
Mr. Butt-plug, you have PURPOSEFULLY avoided doing your job, so you need to (1) RESIGN and (2) SHUT YOUR LYING WEASEL MOUTH!
March 7, 2023 at 2:44 pm
This is probably not likely But suppose when investigating the computers and phones of the buddy of Buttgiggle that was arrested for pornagraphic photos of children they were to find photos sent to him or his “husband”. Time for one of those FBI early morning swat raids ?
March 7, 2023 at 3:46 pm
Really Pete!!! I just wonder when the last time you or your Democrat buddies bought some thing at TJ Maxx or Kohl’s was? If you did, you probably would’ve had the cameras there to show what a regular guy you are, just like when you rode your bicycle to 2 miles from your office, and jumped into an SUV.

Poor little FRUIT-CUP couldn’t take time out of his “PERSONAL” time to do his job, and cries when a “TRUE LEADER” does it first !!!!!!
March 7, 2023 at 5:30 pm
Trump felt their pain.
Not only did the Biden Administration deny there was a problem, but refuse to help them while focusing on undocumented aliens crossing the border into the U.S. and the Ukrainians.
It’s not that those other groups don’t have problems, even deserving help, but the people of East Palestine should at least have some kind of help, rather than be totally ignored by both the Biden Administration, the Democrats in Congress and the Democratic Party supporting media.
It’s not that Marjorie Taylor Green is wanting to have a National Divorce, it’s already happened.

It wasn’t all Buttguages fault for not going right away, he had to be home to nurse the baby.
March 8, 2023 at 9:54 am
He/her either was experiencing his/her monthly or just having a hissy fit.
March 8, 2023 at 10:31 am
Here’s a guy who has no expertise on transportation. His incompetence is on display for everyone to see. He screws up at every chance. He takes months off for paternity leave while the ships backed up off the California coast. And he says Trump doesn’t care. This guy is a complete lying, arrogant and self important elitist.
